REVIEW: Madeleine Peyroux @ the Shedd (Eugene, OR – 4/5/11)

FYI… PHOTOS of the SHOW at the BOTTOM

Madeleine Peyroux has a new album coming out called Standin’ On the Rooftop.  The album, coming out June 7th on Decca, features Marc Ribot on guitar/banjo along with Me’shell Ndegeocello on bass.  No word on tracklist for the full-length, but she just released a preview EP called The Things I’ve Seen Today, which features the title track co-written by violinist Jenny Scheinman and a delightful cover of The Beatles’ “Martha, My Dear” (click picture to the right for samples).

This show in Eugene was her second time through in as many years.  I don’t recall if the band members were the same as last time, but regardless, they were all fantastic musicians.  While Ribot/Ndegeocello/Scheinman were not in the live band, all four band members created a vibe conducive to taking in Madeleine’s golden vocal chords.

They played a fairly jazzy set, and Madeleine’s lush vocals bounced around in more of a jazzy singer-songwriter feel than I remembered her from before.  As you’ll be able to see from the setlist below, she played a lot of the new material from the forthcoming album – much of it I was unable to unidentify.  If you have any assistance on the setlist, let me know in the comments.

Setlist: over 90 minutes

  • unknown
  • The Things I’ve Seen Today
  • Martha, My Dear [The Beatles]
  • “Muddy Mississippi”
  • You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go [Bob Dylan]
  • “seen my reflection underneath the moon”
  • “here we are… I’m only human”
  • Don’t Wait Too Long
  • Don’t Pick a Fight With a Poet
  • “Meet me in Rio”
  • “involuntary pass/past(?)”
  • Dance Me to the End of Love [Leonard Cohen]
  • unknown love song
  • Instead [with band introductions & solos]
  • Encore: J’Ai Deux Amours
  • “I hear music” [with band solos]

Fantastic show.  Madeleine was fairly chatty and in a great mood.  The Eugene crowd was fairly subdued, except for a particular “amateur comedian” named George who interacted a bit with Madeleine – which at one point said she should have him open for her. :)

Be on the lookout for her new album in June.  She’s hitting a few more West Coast & Canada dates (as well as a NYC date) between now and the end of June.  Check out more tour dates below.

Next show for me… quite possibly Ani DiFranco at McDonald Theatre in Eugene (4/12).
